Columbia University’s journalism school published a scathing report Sunday concerning Rolling Stone’s article about an alleged 2012 rape at a University of Virginia fraternity house. BuzzFeed News reporter Mary Ann Georgantopoulos is at the news conference where the lead authors are addressing their findings.

The review by the Columbia University journalism school was published Sunday night. Police said last month they found no evidence of a 2012 rape at a University of Virginia fraternity house as originally reported by Rolling Stone.
